Expert Fraud Detection and Prevention

Global Number Range (GNR) enables users to identify invalid and unallocated numbers quickly and easily.

Accessible, Authoritative Number Intelligence

Powered by XConnect, Global Number Range (GNR) is a compelling tool that allows carriers and service providers to rapidly and efficiently determine if an originating call’s number is invalid or unallocated. With a robust database of over 8.5 million number ranges, the query-based solution effortlessly provides users with the comprehensive intelligence needed to identify and mitigate fraudulent activity on their networks.

Global Number Range (GNR)

Preventing Fraud…. All While Potentially Saving You Money

As one of the most persistent fraud schemes plaguing the telecom industry, International Revenue Share Fraud (IRSF) is costing service providers millions of dollars annually. With bad actors increasingly inflating traffic to international premium rate numbers (IPRN), it’s mission-critical that carriers are diligent in detecting and preventing calls from invalid or unallocated numbers….

…. And with GNR, it’s a fast and efficient to do just this! With a ping to its database, one can instantly confirm a number’s Calling Line ID (CIL), thus making it easy to not only identify and block calls that haven’t been verified, but also to avoid potentially costly Origin Based Rating (OBR) penalty surcharges!
